Well I finished all my training and just enjoying the rest of out time here in the "city" before we head back home. I've been really enjoying being with my sister, her b/f and their baby girl, my "cupcake"! I have some awesome pics of Mt McKinley that I want to get posted when I get home! The weather has been beautiful since we've been here, we have both been enjoying driving in our rental car (a red Dodge Charger). I've been really missing my internet and basic cable (my sis doesn't have cable)... so I'm very lost on what's going on out in the blogging world and the real world.

I have been super busy this whole trip up until now! Yay, now I get to try to enjoy myself then get my butt back home to my pups! So far we've been spoiling my Cupcake getting her anything that she might need, we picked her up a high chair today and a bunch of diapers and wipes! My sister is debating it but I might be able to take her home with me!!! I think it would not only help her with her new job schedule but help take her off her hands for a bit so she doesn't have to worry about her b/f being home babysitting the whole time and not being able to get out and look for a job because he's stuck home with the baby. So maybe with us asking for her for a couple months or so will help them get into a good routine before she comes back and they can get daycare! So we'll see what goes on with that by the time we get ready to go home! I'm excited! If I get to take her home I will share her with my parents!

I can't explain how much I've been missing blogging! Only thing is I haven't really been doing much to blog about. I lost about 10lbs on my trip already, which I don't understand with a diet of McDonalds, Arby's, KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut!!! I don't mind, I only eat when I feel really hungry!

We drove down to Valdez for the weekend and got to hang out with my older sister and her family! I was happy to be able to spend time with her girls (my neices)! We got to go out in their "boat" (a big covered skiff) and went to check the shrimp pots, we got about a gallon of shrimp once we "cleaned" them. The drive down and back was great, I drove both ways! We did the trip in about 5 hours one way! It snowed on the way up but was beautiful blue skies and sunny on the trip back! I was happy to be able to see some of my friends I haven't seen in a long time. One of my BFF sister's graduating this year, I can't believe she's already graduating... where is time going????? It was great to be able to catch up with them and hang out a bit!

I got all my bank rec. training done. Our auditing company told me I learned it faster than some of the auditors they employ! They told me I have a really great head on my shoulders for numbers and that I should go for my Accounting degree.... it's something to think about. I really love working with numbers and I'm pretty good on Excel! I'm happy it went faster than everyone thought and now I'm ready to go home and get all our accounts reconciled!!! I'm actually excited to get home and get started!

We have been enjoying the sun that seems to be out everyday, nice and warm in the mid 60's!! I'm not ready to go home, but yet I'm ready to go home! Well I can't wait to get back to blogging daily!!!

Until sometime, TTFN!!!


  1. Do you think Ivy will really let you take Aaliyah? My mom wants to take Easton with her too when she goes home next month, but i'd be so lost without him! I told her that I didn't think so! :) It would save me on childcare, but i'd miss him way too much! :) Where did Ivy get a new job? Gosh, we need to hook up before you leave! wanna do dinner somewhere?

  2. glad you are alive April!!!
    SO the mommy bug may be biting you (cupcake and all).
    Enjoy the visit

  3. OMG About time girl!! the blog world has not been the same without you!!
    The pups are fine! Just asking what day you are coming home?

  4. My sis didn't let me bring her home... but she did pack all her stuff.. but when it came down to it she couldn't let her go... maybe when my mom gets up there she'll let her bring her down... then I'll take her! So no Cupcake for me for now.... hopefully though!!
